    Hello MohammedU
    I tried in same way as you suggested me..but got failure...
    I am getting the error of "SQL Server 2005 express installed".
    Can't we install both Express version of SQL Server(2005 & 2008) in same system..?
    Or I can have only one version of SQL server Express Edition..?
    Please suggest me some good approach...because I have already tried so many way but failed.
